Returning to 'Welcome to Leith'

At the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, a documentary called Welcome to Leith debuted. It was about a small town in North Dakota that was overtaken by white supremacists. (Their strategy was simple: If there's more of us than there are of them, we decide what happens in this community.) With Trump's rise, I revisited the film and interviewed one of its directors, Michael Beach Nichols, for MEL. You can read the piece here.
